Location: Beijing, China

MapJust finished my language test. Kinda sorta hard not really. I'm just glad I can recognize most of the characters we have learned cuz I can't write most of them from memory. So I spent a lot of time searching the test for questions with these characters in them, then just copied them down. Its not cheating, its taking advantage of the situation. One of the listening parts was a bit confusing bot because I didn't understand what she was saying but because I didn't understand what we were suppose to be doing. But anyways, I have to write and type up a one page synopses on my capstone project. Its a project we all have to do entirely in chinese. The project is due at the end of the semester. I am going to do the legacy of mao in china. Basically my research is be 80-90% talking to chinese people and asking them what they think of mao. It should be interesting. Part of the project is to do research on something that you could only do research on while in china, and to use primary sources for the bulk of our research..ie, talking to people. It should be a pain in the ass but fun as well. After I write this up I have to go to my works office to meet some people and find out exactly what I will be doing. I think I will start tomorrow. I'll fill in on the details when I get them. Peace!
